So I’ve been working on this project…

I started it while my mom was here, and I haven’t gotten as much done on it as I’ve wanted. This thing has been in the works for a better part of the year (It’s August already?? You’ve got to be kidding me!) and I’m just not able to spend as much time on it as I want.

It’s something I’m making for Little Man. Who is 22 months old. Which means that pretty soon this thing I’m making for him will be obsolete because it’s taken me so gosh-darn long to do it. Luckily it’s not clothes or I’d be completely out of luck. So far the parts of it that I’ve made he’s still been interested in, but I’m seriously pushing things here.

Anyway. The only thing that’s made it even sort of possible for me to do is my new sewing machine. I’ve talked to you before about how much I hate sewing machines. I’ve always hated sewing machines for as long as I can remember, and I assumed I always would. If you’ve noticed, the vast majority of fabric crafts on this blog are hand-sewn. So, imagine my surprise when I found a sewing machine I actually enjoyed using.
